Friends of Kimble

Welcome

Friends of Kimble (FOKS) is a group of parents, ex-parents, staff and friends of the school, whose role is to provide a series of social and fundraising events during the school year for the children, their families and the local community to enjoy. EVERY family has membership of FOKS throughout the time their child is at Great Kimble School. This means they are welcome to attend events and activities, as well as come to meetings, where they can get involved in decision-making and event organising.

For all you facebookers out there we have a facebook page of our own! It’s called Friends of Kimble School, it is a closed group so you will need to ask to join but please take a look.  The policy for ues of the page can be obtained by clicking the link below.

Useful Information

Match Funding We discovered the wonderful world of match funding last year and managed to double the amount of money the Summer Fair Raffle raised by one of our parents approaching their employer to match funding. If any Mums or Dads work for organizations that run match funding please do let us know as it doubles are hard earned money we raise.
